Hey Now! Welcome aboard this wild and crazy train. My name is Jeremy, I live in Thailand. I have been an active member since Sep 05.

Yes, I thought you were just high on caffeine with all your posts, but I can understand and appreciate you enthusiasm. My whole life changed when I came aboard. I learned (and am still learning) so much. I told my friends that I earned my online Masters Degree in GD History and Culture from here.

When I saw your post I thought it was from another of our charter members on here, our resident Rob Hunter source - Ashesrising. Ashes, if you're out there, we all miss you on here.

With a little search, here's all that I can come up with: http://www.hunterarchive.com/

I am sure if he was playing somewhere you would hear about it on www.dead.net You could sign up and receive updates on the band members, mostly Phil and Blobby -- whoops, I mean Bobby. You can also go to http://www.jambase.com/ and do a search for RH. I just did and there are no shows.

Here's an old post I saved, I have many and will send you more as you respond and request them. Ashesrising is on this one too.

Enjoy!

Questions:

Where do you live? I am from PA

How long have you been a Dead Head. 17 years for me, I'm 32.

Do you have a lot of Official Releases, Jerry, Hunter? I do and love them all.

Have you gotten into the Bit Torrent world - FLAC/SHN files? I have big time and need another 500 GB hard Drive asap
; )

What are your favorite years for GD music? My all-time fav is 73.

Enjoy!

Hey Jeremy it's Paul-Just wanted to get back to you briefly for the time being,more to come later.Thanks for the Hunter links. I've been into the band since about 1980. I'm from Long Island, New York. My older brothers used to play sweet sounding music in their rooms and I heard it, loved it , and they made me a tape mix of songs for me back then. I'm 40 now and have been avidly listening ever since. To answer your question about torrents,no, I can't seem to figure out how to work with them.quite frustrating because I hear they are basically the best you can get opposed to other sources. Is that true? I tried using Vuze but it didn't pan out for me. I will probably try again but is a bit of a complicated process. I'm really into the early 70's Dead right now but enjoy each era they went through. Still discovering more and more shows i
I like enough to download, coming across many gems and nuggets every day it seems. Will get back to you later I gotta get some sleep.

DL the program at bittorrent dot com, it works with the regularly attended sites such as lossless legs, bt.etree and dime a dozen. (Most pirate BT sites prevent use from U.S. based URL addresses.) This program is quite simple, just follow the instructions on the screen.

Once you Dl the program and start it up, simply go to a bt site and click on the file to DL. You must have a "seeder" or a number of seeders that are actively uploading the information in order to DL. This is typically shown on the BT website, then verified on your BT activity screen. Depending on the number of seeds and the size of the file the DL will take from minutes to sometimes days. (Just leave you computer on and forget it.) You will also be expected to leave your files open after the DL as a seeder for others. The BT sites keep score and it's good Karma to do for others.

One note, most of the files you DL will be in FLAC format which is not read by the Windows Media program. You will need to DL a player. I use Winamp. Once you grab this technology, you'll be addicted.

Hey Jeremy, it's Pauly. Don't know what time your on in Thailand but thought I'd get back to you now. What's it like there? Is there a good representation of Americans living there? How long have you lived there? Are you a Thai citizen/national? I've been downloading a lot of '72 shows lately(10/18,5/18,1/2,5/4 and,of course I already have the 8/27 on disc. I do have many official releases from both Garcia/Dead. I usually start each day listening to Jerry's "Cats Under The Stars"-it just gets me going for the day perfectly. Can't seem to get tired of it. Love "Reflections","Compliments"and "Garcia" to name just a few. Don't know if you've heard the "Pizza Tapes" yet, I'd highly recommend that one. Also have a few Garcia/Saunders releases. Have most of the Dead's releases as well(studio and live). "American Beauty" is a favorite and personally I also like "Go To Heaven"-early Brent,he sounds so good on this one,i.e."Far From Me","Don't Ease". Althea is probably my fave on this CD. My first show was 4/12/82,Nassau. A twenty minute drive from home.Saw the Dead just 31 times in comparison to those that witnessed hundreds. My last one was 6/18/95 at Giant's Stadium. Feel so fortunate to have seen them so close to the end even though the quality of play had diminished greatly. Miss Jer each day but I did go to see Phil last week at Nokia-Times Square(11/9) and had a great time. Phil and the band sounded good and I already have a copy of the show. Also saw Ratdog on 10/30 and 10/31. Loved the Halloween show with a nice Werewolves encore. Left on such a natural high,for the most part. Anyway that's it for now. Hope all's well with you over there.Talk soon.
